DRN 2013 Vol. XXXI No. 3: Social Protection Policies on Spotlight as Manila Hosts 14th GDN Meet

This issue of the Development Research News (DRN) covers the highlights of the 14th Global Development Conference in Manila organized by Global Development Network (GDN), an international organization dedicated to building research capacity in development. The Philippine Institute for Development Studies, the East Asian Development Network, and the Asian Development Bank partnered with the GDN for this annual conference which was held for the first time in Southeast Asia. For three days, experts discussed and debated why, despite the global growth phenomenon, inclusive growth is still elusive amid hundreds of millions of people living in extreme poverty. Experts also discussed how social protection policies could help ease income inequality.

DRN also marks an important transition in the institutional life of the country`s top development policy think tank, with Josef Yap, one of the country`s top economists, leaving the Institute after a remarkable eight-year tenure as president, and Gilberto Llanto taking over as the new president of PIDS.
